“I can’t think of another show that has a song of that caliber laced throughout it,” Mikey Harland tells Welcome to Twin Peaks about Laura Palmer’s Theme. “It really transformed Twin Peaks for me.”
Myriad Drone, Mikey’s 4-piece post-rock band , just finished an emotive, drum-heavy rework of Angelo Badalamenti‘s haunting and ever-present composition. The ball got rolling when the Melbourne-based band’s guitarist and composer, Shamus Maximus, was re-watching Twin Peaks, making its soundtrack a subject at practice. The night they first thought about covering Laura Palmer’s Theme, guitar player Daniel Cross played a few bars. “Something must have stuck with Shamus, because after a long weekend locked in his little studio, he presented this.”

This sounds a little like Akira Yamaoka’s score from Silent Hill 2, which is both an appropriate mash up and Awesome.
Very nice! Any chance of this being featured in the new season?
That would be an incredible honour. I wonder if anyone involved with the show has heard it.
Well, I get the impression that people who work on the show are aware of this and other fan sites. Since you’ve posted it here, I think you may have a shot.
You’ve done a great job. Could you work up a cover of Dance of the Dream Man? 🙂
WOWBOBWOW!!!!! Simply amazing! I hope this makes the new soundtrack! Definitely worthy! Great job!!!
I was all prepared to hate this… but it’s actually pretty good!
Awesome! Brought me into the shivery Peaks mood instantly and made me want to be melancholy (but not lazy).
Sounds like a good song for end credits.
